This first colloquium invited speakers to discuss matters of importance for the creation of organizational value in a sustainable manner.
Prof. Nick McGuigan explained how Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, is teaching aspirant business persons how to think differently because, as he put it, “we don’t even know the nature of the jobs in the future because of the Fourth Industrial Revolution". Prof. Guler Aras of the Yildz Technical University, Turkey, exposed participants to her knowledge of the working of the global capital markets and her experience from having served on the board of the Istanbul Stock Exchange, which is a parent stock exchange of some twenty other stock exchanges in the Middle East.
